1603 marks not only the succession of Elizabeth I of England by James VI of Scotland, but also a change of dynasty from Tudor to Stuart. This conference explores how, in a world of weak bureaucracy that depended on the willingness of powerful people to govern, a change of dynasty influenced the governance of the realm, and how it re-shaped diplomacy and intellectual culture.
